Regulated by RICS

Hollis is happy to announce that our project, Edward Pavilion, has been shortlisted in the RICS Social Impact Awards 2020 in the Commercial category (North West region).

The project involved an extensive refurbishment of a six storey c.8000 sq.m. (GIA) Grade I Listed Building within the Albert Dock complex, part of Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage site. We were appointed to work alongside our client, Castleforge Partners, as project manager and principal designer, and also provided TDD, M&E, measured surveys, planned maintenance and RCA’s.

The building was given a complete overhaul creating CAT A open lettable floor space and CAT B serviced offices / co-working space whilst retaining the character of the building. The scheme also achieved a BREEAM Very Good rating, which is exceptional for an historic, listed building.

It’s anticipated that the Total Economic Impact created by the Edward Pavilion project across the North West and wider UK will be around £8 million.

Also involved in making this project a success were:

  • Principal contractor (fit out) – Ardmac
  • Architect – Aedas
  • Cost consultant – Linesight
  • M&E – Lehding Services
  • Fire Engineer – Jeremy Gardner Associates Belfast Ltd
  • Principal designer (fit out) – 74
  • Planning consultant – Barton Willmore
  • BREEAM consultant – Create Consulting Engineers

These awards are the only nationally recognised awards programme that show the impact our built environment has on people’s lives. They highlight excellence at a regional and national level, identifying the projects making a positive difference. The winner will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on the 24th April.
